Invisalign is a clear braces system that uses a series of removable aligners to gradually shift misaligned teeth into the appropriate positions. The principles behind Invisalign are the same as conventional braces, but their “invisible”nature makes them an excellent option for adults who are interested in straighter teeth.
Invisalign is effective at treating most cases of malocclusion, leaving patients with a straighter smile. There are many advantages to Invisalign over traditional braces, including:
- Reduced time in the dentist office. The Invisalign system only requires you to the visit the office about every six weeks for monitoring.
- Improved oral hygiene. With Invisalign, you can take out the aligner trays while you are eating and to clean your teeth. This allows you to clean more effectively and reduce bacteria in the mouth that can lead to a buildup of plaque.
- Comfort. The clear aligner trays are easy to use and more comfortable than metal wires and bracket.
Now that you are considering the Invisalign system, you may be wondering about the cost. The cost of the Invisalign system is comparable to traditional braces. In addition, Invisalign requires fewer visits to the dentist and often has a shorter treatment time, which can help bring down the cost.
For patients with dental insurance, you should contact your provider to find out if they cover Invisalign. Many insurance plans cover a portion of orthodontic treatment. For patients without dental insurance, or with a plan that does not cover Invisalign, you can still achieve your dreams of a straight smile. We are happy to discuss different options for payments and financing.
The first step to having your dream smile is an exam and evaluation. Once we are able to evaluate your teeth we can determine if Invisalign is right for you. If you are in the Rochester area and would like to learn more about the Invisalign, call us today to schedule your consultation.
